Just as Nova gets ho from three X scoring went in the deep freeze
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

Whose idea is it to leave the shooter wide open? Gytis has no idea what to do on defense. Worst interior players I’ve seen for Xavier.

Unbelievable how Nova gets =away with traveling. I understand getting homered, but guys call it and stop getting star-struck

Why call a timeout with the ball and 15 seconds? Because they carry over to the second half? Never understood it…

If we could shoot we would be up by ten but thank God they cannot either. I expect them to shoot much better in the second half. Question is can we??? Our big guys are just so raw and inexperienced but I still believe in time they will be good but how long will it take. Our Defense was good other than that terrible play at the free throw line. We need more from McKnight and Olivari.

Pretty good defensive effort but Villanova looks very different without Moore. If Ciani had converted half his close shots it would be a closer game .Not sure where the offense will come from. Green hit a couple threes and good to see him getting more comfortable. We have to shoot better than 30% in the second half. We need Mcknight and Ousmane to come on. Going to take 70 points to win.

30.6% from the field has to improve to win this game. Need more 50-50 balls and stop them from getting second chance shots

SM struggles with timeout's management.

guys just keep shooting themselves in the foot and Nova is just good enough to take advantage of the mistakes. 12-point advantage from three-point X shooting 35% but nova 44%
